    It depends where you are. Many folks go to Mexico because it is less than 5000.00 US dollars. I had mine done locally, Louisiana, and it was 9600.00. I have seen pricing up to 20,000.00 for self pay in the US.
    Margaret
    1 month: 25 lost (194-10 day stall)
    3 months: 9 lost (173-halfway to goal!)
    5 months: 7 lost (161-1week stall)
    7 months: 4 lost (152-4 week stall)
    9 months: 1 lost (145-1 month stall)
    10 months: 0 lost (145-2month stall
    14 months: 0 lost (145-7 month stall)

    My goal: 145...originally 129 but my body said no!

    In Wisconsin it's $20,000+. That's what I'm facing for self pay. Yeah, it's a real bite in the nards. (F.Y.I. I don't have nards.)
